Learners were very interested about the lesson that we have, since now they have a broad understanding of what a wetland can do, they now know that a wetland can purify water and also prevent erosion. They also learnt that there are approximately 100 000 species that live in wetlands and about 30% of carbon dioxide sequestrated in the wetlands,they also learnt about a wetland plant called the peatland which absorbs overflows from streams and lakes. The learners were taught to make a wetland model that can filter and purify water using the materials provided.
